This number is a prime.

2243996 2446379651

The first prime *p* for which the next prime is exactly 1000 larger. Of the one dozen primes discovered by Bertil Nyman in 2001
and 2002 whose immediate successors are 1000 larger, the
first of these (22439962446379651) is the only such prime
which is the greater element in a twin prime
pair, illustrating the dichotomy that prime gaps can be very small on the one
hand and very large on the other. [Schiffman]
