[Litman] The smallest EuclidPocklington palprime: prime of the form p[1]*p[2]*...*p[k]*p[k+1]^m + 1 where p[r] = rth prime and p[1]*p[2]*...*p[k] < p[k+1]^m. [Russo] The smallest palindromic prime occurring between two consecutive squareful (or nonsquarefree) numbers. [Gupta] This prime number is the sum of the Roman Number values of the letters in "CHARLIE BROWN", the star of the famous "peanuts" cartoon by Charles M. Schulz. [Hartley] The smallest prime that begins a 3run of sums of 5 consecutive primes: 151 + 157 + 163 + 167 + 173 = 811; and 811 + 821 + 823 + 827 + 829 = 4111; and 4111 + 4127 + 4129 + 4133 + 4139 = 20639.
