The smaller prime in the first multidigit "Gridgeman pair." A Gridgeman pair is two palindromic primes, which differ only in that their middle digits are x and x + 1 respectively. These are named in honor of Norman T. Gridgeman (1912-1995) who conjectured that there are an infinite number of primes in this form. [King]
