Abstract: We use a polyhedral criterion for the existence of diagonal splittings to investigate which toric varieties $ X$ are diagonally split. Our results are stated in terms of the vector configuration given by primitive generators of the 1-dimensional cones in the fan defining $ X$. We show, in particular, that $ X$ is diagonally split at all $ q$ if and only if this configuration is unimodular, and that $ X$ is not diagonally split at any $ q$ if this configuration is not $ 2$-regular. We also study implications for the possibilities for the set of $ q$ at which a toric variety $ X$ is diagonally split.
