COMMENTS

If n is in the sequence, then n == 0 or 1 mod 3 and n == 3, 4, or 7 mod 8. But the converse is not true: 100 and 268 are not in the sequence (are there other examples?).
Guy [op. cit.] quotes Paul Turan as asking for a characterization of the terms of this sequence.  N. J. A. Sloane, Jan 16 2017

EXAMPLE

3 is in the sequence, since 3 is the sum of the squares of 0, 1, 1, 1 and these four numbers are pairwise coprime.
7 is in the sequence, since 7 is the sum of the squares of 1, 1, 1, 2 and these four numbers are pairwise coprime.
