We prove the existence of three irreducible curves of degree 12 with the same number of cusps and different Alexander polynomials. This exhibits a Zariski triple. Moreover we provide a set of generators for the elliptic threefold with constant -invariant 0 and discriminant curve . Finally we consider a general degree base change of and calculate the dimension of the equisingular deformation space.
