Abstract: We compute the homotopy type of the space of $ \mathbb{T}^n$-equivariant symplectic embeddings from the standard $ 2n$-dimensional ball of some fixed radius into a $ 2n$-dimensional symplectic-toric manifold $ (M, \, \sigma)$, and use this computation to define a $ \mathbb{Z}_{\ge 0}$-valued step function on $ \mathbb{R}_{\ge 0}$ which is an invariant of the symplectic-toric type of $ (M, \, \sigma)$. We conclude with a discussion of the partially equivariant case of this result.
