Although cosmology and unification suggest that the mass of the gluino is larger than about 14 GeV, in many theories of broken supersymmetry the photino γ, gluino g and one of the spin-zero partners t of the t quark can be lighter than mt- We calculate the decay rates for toponium →gg, γγ and tt and show that in many models they can be as large as, or larger than, the rate for toponium →e+e- decay. If it is kinematically accesible, the decay t→t + γ dominates the decays of toponium as well as those of naked top states.
