+ 181 is the smallest odd prime (and fifth in all) exponent of 2 dissecting the interval between successive primes, i.e., 2^181 + 165 are both prime with no intervening primes. [King]

+ 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]
