+ 215 - 51 is prime.

+ The smallest multi-digit integer I such that 4*I+1 and 4*I-1 are both primes. [Russo]

+ There are exactly 15 palindromic primes of length three. [Patterson]

+ 15 is the smallest number which is product of two distinct odd primes. [Capelle]

+ !15 - 1 is prime. Note that !15 represents subfactorial 15. [Gupta]
