COMMENTS

For n odd, a(n) is the greatest prime <= n; for n even > 2, a(n) is the greatest prime < n1.
For composite n = p + 1, p does not appear since 2 is the smallest prime.  Michael De Vlieger, May 31 2020

EXAMPLE

a(9) = 7, the greatest prime < 9 (prime partitions of 9 are: [2,7], [2,2,5], [2,2,2,3] and [3,3,3], in which 7 is greatest of greatest parts).
a(12) = 7 (greatest prime < 11).
