FERMAT QUESTION

Fermat conerned about number 26, for its position. Indeed  26 is between a cube  27 and a square 25.He wondered if there exist another numbers  with this feature.  In the margin of a page of Diphanto's arithmetic, as he usualy didl,  wrote that  had found a demonstration makes sure no others number exists,that there is only 26 with this feature. Who can prove it?
