I could have this wrong, but here goes:

The splitting field for is , where is a third root of unity.

We then have

Since we can determine all automorphisms based on the roots of and , where is another root of , let's see where that takes us.

Define the automorphisms as follows:

Now note , so .

I'll leave it to you to see why .

So I'm thinking , where is a three-cycle.
