## Abstract:

We classify septic number fields which are unramified outside of $\{\infty ,2, 3\}$ by a targeted Hunter search; there are exactly $10$ such fields, all with Galois group $S_7$. We also describe separate computations which strongly suggest that none of these fields come from specializing septic genus zero three-point covers.## References
