If we extend hexadecimal notation, with a = 10, b = 11, c = 12, etc, to bases greater than 16, then 41843 is the smallest prime base in which Aristophanes' dish "lepadotemachoselachogaleokranioleipsanodrimypotrimmatosilphiotyromelitokatakech ymenokichlepikossyphophattoperisteralektryonoptokephaliokinklopeleiolagoiosiraioba phetragalopterygon" evaluates to a prime, using the transliteration given by O'Neill.
