This number of points is reached by the curve x^4+y^4+z^4+6*(x^2*y^2+x^2*z^2+y^2*z^2)=0 (see J-P. Serre, Rational points on curves over finite fields, Lectures given at
Harvard University, 1985. Notes by F. Q. Gouvêa p.72 -computation of M. Nitzberg-).

Its Weil polynomial is (X^2+8*X+19)^3.

Its automorphism group (over F_19 and geometric) is S_4.
