COMMENTS

Also spiral constructed on the infinite hexagonal grid in which each term is the least nonnegative integer such that no diagonal of successive adjacent cells contains a repeated term. Every number is located in the center of a hexagonal cell. Every cell is also the center of three diagonals of successive adjacent cells.
Presumably every line of cells with slope a multiple of 60 degrees (not necessarily passing through the central cell) is a permutation of the nonnegative numbers. See A296343A296348 for the spokes through the central cell.  N. J. A. Sloane, Dec 12 2017
