COMMENTS
The members of a pair of numbers p and q are called amicable factorions if each is equal to the sum of the factorials of the base-10 digits of the other. The only six pairs (p,q) are (1, 1), (2, 2), (145, 145), (871,45361), (872, 45362), (40585, 40585).
Peter Kiss (1977) showed there are no further terms. - N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 17 2019

FORMULA
n such that f(f(n))=n, where f(k)=A061602(k).
EXAMPLE
871 and 45361 are in the sequence because:
871 => 8!+7!+1! = 40320 +5040 + 1 = 45361;
45361 => 4!+5!+3!+6!+1! = 24 + 120 + 6 + 720 + 1 = 871.
