The extension E/F leads to a curve of genus 4 with 8 points. Extending once again by H of degree 2 leads to the desired result, as we write
H/(E/F):= v^2 + v*x + x^3 + x .

Explicit Curve

We can assume such a curve C as an extension E of degree 2 of a curve F of genus 1 as follows:
F:= (x + y + x*y) * x*y + x + 1
E/F := z^2 * x + z + x^2 * y^2
