Lemma 4.35.3. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category. Let $\mathcal{S}$ be a fibred category over $\mathcal{C}$. Then $\mathcal{S}$ is split if and only if for some choice of pullbacks (see Definition 4.32.6) the pullback functors $(f \circ g)^*$ and $g^* \circ f^*$ are equal.

Proof. This is immediate from the definitions. $\square$
