Description Let D be an integer and let C_D be the set of all monic cubic polynomials x^3 + ax^2 + bx + c with integral coefficients and with the discriminant equal to D. Along the line of our preceding papers, the following Theorem has been proved: If D is square-free and 3 does not divide the class number of Q((-3D)^(1/2)), then all polynomials in C_D have the same type of factorization over the Galois field F_p where p is a prime, p > 3. In this paper, we prove the validity of the above implication also for primes 2 and 3.
