COMMENTS

Place numbers 2,3,5,7 clockwise around a grid point (see illustrations in links). Divide grid into four spiral arms.

Extend each arm one step at a time, in rotation: first the 2 arm, then the 3 arm, then the 5 arm, then the 7 arm, then the 2 arm, etc.

Rule for extending: next term in arm is smallest number such that each cell in the grid is relatively prime to its eight neighbors.

Repetitions in arms are permitted.

The four arms are A257321, A257322, A257323, A257324.
