%N Lexicographically largest increasing sequence of primes for which the continued square root map (see A257574) produces Pi.

%C The continued square root map applied to a sequence (x,y,z,...) is CSR(x,y,z,...) = sqrt(x + sqrt(y + sqrt(z + ...))); this is well defined if the logarithm of the terms is O(2^n).
