COMMENTS

Or, p such that primorial(p)  1 is prime.
a(19) > 287177. This corresponds to primorial(prime(25000)) which has 124424 digits.  Robert Price, Nov 22 2014
From the Primorial Primes link below, two additional terms (843301 and 1098133) in this sequence have been determined. They may or may not be the very next terms however.  Robert Price, Feb 04 2015
