%N Concatenation of the palindromic numbers (A002113) in increasing order up to the nth term and then in decreasing order.
%C By definition, all terms are palindromes. Inspired by A261493.
%C There are no primes in this sequence up to a(1100).
%C The least prime factors of a(n), n>=1, are: 1, 11, 3, 11, 41, 3, 239, 11, 3, 11, 11, 3, 11, 11, 3, 11, 11, 3, 71, 21557, 19, 17, 31, 181, 17, 353, 19, 31, 19, 29, 17, 29, 11616377, 214141, 19, 5471, 17, 13883, 3, 7, ..., . See A261411.
%C The first (probable) prime in this sequence was found by _David Broadhurst_ on Aug 25 2015: this is a(2007), a 21233digit probable prime with central term 1008001.  _N. J. A. Sloane_, Aug 24 2015
