COMMENTS

Equivalently: Let i, i+d, i+2d, ..., i+(n1)d be an arithmetic progression of exactly n primes; choose the one which minimizes the last term; then a(n) = first term i.
The adverb "exactly" requires both id and i+n*d to be nonprime (see A113827).
For the corresponding values of the last term, see A354376.
The primes in these arithmetic progressions need not be consecutive. (The smallest prime at the start of a run of exactly n consecutive primes in arithmetic progression is A006560(n).)

EXAMPLE

The first few corresponding arithmetic progressions are:
n = 1 (2);
n = 2 (2, 3);
n = 3 (3, 5, 7);
n = 4 (7, 19, 31, 43);
n = 5 (5, 11, 17, 23, 29);
n = 6 (7, 37, 67, 97, 127, 157);
n = 7 (7, 157, 307, 457, 607, 757, 907)...
