COMMENTS

There is a sequence A048763(A000040(n)) = A145446(n) of nearest cubes above the primes and a sequence A048762(A000040(n)) of nearest cubes below the primes.

If the difference A145446(n) - A048762(A000040(n)) is prime, then A000040(n) is in this sequence.

EXAMPLE

The difference of cubes 6^3 - 5^3 = 91 = 7*13 is not prime, so the primes larger than 5^3 = 125 but smaller than 6^3 = 216 are not in the sequence.
