Comments
This number of points is reached by the cubic cover t^3=y-x^2+x*y of the elliptic curve y^2-y=x^3-x^2 (see J-P. Serre, Rational points on curves over finite fields, Lectures given at
Harvard University, 1985. Notes by F. Q. Gouvêa, p.64-68).

Its Weil polynomial is (X^2+2*X+7)*(X^2+5*X+7)^2.

The number of points is reached by the curve
x^4+ y^4 +4 + x^2*y^2 + 2*y^2 + 2*x^2 = 0.
