COMMENTS

a(11) itself is the primary source of interest for this particular sequence, since already at a(4) we have the first value permitting concatenation of a 7th prime. A219677 contains the sequence where successors are placed in sequence to the left rather than the right.

EXAMPLE

The 72-digit prime 10000069939910000699417100000699439100000699453100000699517100000699543 is the concatenation of 6 successive primes, and deletion from the right results in a shorter prime for all 5 steps.  So, 100000699399 is one of the terms of this sequence, a(11).
