%N Primes with repdigit indices (in decimal).

%C Elements of this sequence are the first 9 primes, then the 11th, 22nd, 33rd, ... , 99th, 111th, 222nd, etc. This is a somewhat remarkable sequence because of certain digital coincidences (see Prime Curios links).

%F a(n) = A000040(A010785(n)).

%e The first prime skipped is the 10th, 29, so that a(10)=31. Then follows a(11)=79, a(12)=137, a(13)=193, etc.: The 22nd, 33rd, and 44th primes, and so on.
