Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Sayampabhā:A class of Devas,among whom virtuous men,such as those that maintain their parents and engage in harmless trades,are born (SN.vs.404).

From the Commentary (SNA.p.379) it would appear that Sayampabhā is probably a generic name for all Devas (ye te attano ābhāya andhakāram vidhamitvā ālokakaranena Sayampabhāti laddhanāmā cha kāmāvacaradevā).
