COMMENTS

Subset of A006512 (greater of twin primes).

Inspired by C. Rivera's Prime Curio for 313. a(4) = 229 is the smallest prime having the same property he states for 313.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 229 because 229, 229 - 2, 229 - 2*3, 229 - 2*3*5 and 229 - 2*3*5*7 are all prime and there is no smaller prime with this property.

CROSSREFS
