a(23) > 2*10^5. - Robert Price, Jan 29 2016

Primes of the form (10^k-1)/3 - 2*10^floor(k/2) are obtained for k in (2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 10, 15, 22, 34, 123, 126, 144, 181, 185, 198, 534, 539, 597, 606, ...). For example (10^2 - 1)/3 - 2*10^1 = 13 is also prime. However, for even k the result is not palindromic. See A077775-A077798, A107123-A107127 for PWP's with digits other than 3 and 1. - M. F. Hasler, Mar 03 2019
