Odd primes never die (Posted on 2010-05-20) Difficulty: 4 of 5
I 've found an interesting table of numbers in an old issue of JMR, dedicated to astounding trivia regarding primes.
Erasing all the digits in the table's footnotes I got a challenging, albeit solvable puzzle:
The XX consecutive primes from X to XX sum up to the prime number XXX.
Also when arranged in groups of three, each group sums up to a prime number.
Furthermore, those partial sums with their digits reversed, also sum up to the same sum as before the reversal!

Try to reconstruct the trivia : both the table and the text.
