Abstract: In this paper we study a surface which has many intriguing and puzzling aspects: on one hand it is related to the Fano surface of lines of a cubic threefold, and on the other hand it is related to a ball quotient occurring in the realm of hypergeometric functions, as studied by Deligne and Mostow. It is moreover connected to a surface constructed by Hirzebruch in his works for constructing surfaces with Chern ratio equal to $ 3$ by arrangements of lines on the plane. Furthermore, we obtain some results that are analogous to the results of Yamasaki-Yoshida when they computed the lattice of the Hirzebruch ball quotient surface.
