Historical Note on Solutions to Diophantine Equation $x \left({x + 1}\right) = y \left({y + 5}\right) \left({y + 10}\right) \left({y + 15}\right)$

According to David Wells in his Curious and Interesting Numbers, 2nd ed. of $1997$, this result appeared in Acta Arithmetica on page $194$ of volume $7$.

However, this contributor has tried to identify the article in question, and it appears to have nothing to do with the theorem discussed here.
