Decomposition and endomorphism algebra

Endomorphism algebra over $\F_{2^{3}}$
The endomorphism algebra of this simple isogeny class is \(\Q(\sqrt{-2}) \).
Endomorphism algebra over $\overline{\F}_{2^{3}}$
The base change of $A$ to $\F_{2^{6}}$ is the simple isogeny class 1.64.q and its endomorphism algebra is the quaternion algebra over \(\Q\) ramified at $2$ and $\infty$.
All geometric endomorphisms are defined over $\F_{2^{6}}$.
