COMMENTS

There exist nonpandiagonal 6 X 6 magic squares composed of consecutive primes with smaller magic constant, the smallest being A073520(6) = 484.
Pandiagonal means that not only the 2 main diagonals, but all other 10 diagonals also have the same sum, Sum_{i=1..6} A[i,M6(k +/ i)] = 930 for k = 1, ..., 6 and M6(x) = y in {1, ..., 6} such that y == x (mod 6).  M. F. Hasler, Oct 20 2018
See A320876 for the primes in the order in which they appear in the matrix.  M. F. Hasler, Oct 22 2018
