Probably. Here's a bunch:

If you want more, you should probably look into fast systems for solving cubic Thue equations. I could share my PARI/GP code but it's not particularly performant.

If this is just the above problem, but asking for the numbers to be powers as well, there should be only finitely many, with 16 being presumably the only one.
