 A sum of 3 (Posted on 2013-12-27)
383 is a Palindrome number expressible as a sum of 3 consecutive palindromic primes:
383=101+131+151

Find additional samples like that or prove that none exists.

10   for Pn=1 to 999999
11   Nxprm=nxtprm(Nxprm)
15    if Nxprm=Prv then stop
16    if fnPalin(Nxprm) then
17    :Sum=Sum-Ppp+Nxprm
20    :Ppp=Pp:Pp=P:P=Nxprm
40    :if fnPalin(Sum) then
50       :print Ppp;Pp;P,Sum;:if prmdiv(Sum)=Sum then print "*":else print
55    Prv=Nxprm
60   next Pn:print Nxprm
800   end
900   '
1000   fnPalin(N)
1010     T=1:S=cutspc(str(N))
1020     for I=1 to int(len(S)/2)
1030       if mid(S,I,1)<>mid(S,len(S)+1-I,1) then T=0
1040     next
1050    return(T)

The first two lines of the below output are spurious due to the methodology used in the program. The remaining lines show the three successive palindromic primes, and the sum.  If the sum is also prime and asterisk (*) appears to the right of the line, as in the example, though the rules do not specifiy that primality is needed in the sum.

1300031  1303031  1311131       3914193
15485857

The final, single, number shows the highest prime tested, the 999,999th prime.
