+ The song "Re-Make/Re-Model" from Roxy Music's eponymous debut album contains the esoteric chorus "CPL 593H" (referring to a British license plate).

+ 593 = 92 + 29. [Astle]

+ The number on the conning tower of the submarine USS Wayne in the movie "The Spy Who Loved Me."

+ 593 = 2^(3*3) + 3^(2*2). [Silva]

+ Largest known prime of its form, total number of inequivalent Latin squares (or isotopy classes of Latin squares) of order n, for n from 1 through 7. That is, 1 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 22 + 564 = 593 is prime. [Post]
