Isogenies and isogeny class

This curve has non-trivial cyclic isogenies of degree \(d\) for \(d=\) 2, 3 and 6.
Its isogeny class 16.1-a consists of curves linked by isogenies of degrees dividing 6.

Base change

This curve is not the base-change of an elliptic curve defined over \(\Q\). It is a \(\Q\)-curve.
