Abstract: Let K be a cyclic number field with generating polynomial

$\displaystyle {X^3} - \frac{{a - 3}}{2}{X^2} - \frac{{a + 3}}{2}X - 1$

and conductor m. We will derive a lower bound for the class number of these fields and list all such fields with prime conductor $ m = ({a^2} + 27)/4$ or $ m = (1 + 27{b^2})/4$ and small class number.
