EXAMPLE

The first four terms of the sequence are 5, 7, 17, 19. The sum of any three is prime: 5 + 7 + 17 = 29, 5 + 7 + 19 = 31, 5 + 17 + 19 = 41, 7 + 17 + 19 = 43. This set of four primes has the smallest possible sum, 48, and is unique.
There are two such sets of four primes with sum 72: {5, 11, 13, 43} and {11, 13, 19, 29}. The first set is listed first since it is lexicographically earliest.
