COMMENTS

All of the numbers in this sequence are odd multiples of 3 and, thus, congruent to 3 (mod 6).

The tenth powers modulo 6 are 1, 4, 3, 4, 1, 0, ... (A070431). Subtracting 10 (still modulo 6), we get 3, 0, 5, 0, 3, 2, ... which means that only n = 3 mod 6 can produce a potential prime p = 5 mod 6.

EXAMPLE

21^10 - 10 = 16679880978191 is prime. Thus, 21 is a member of this sequence.
