Prime that is sum of consecutive triangular numbers with prime indices — Part 1

 
 
T_2 \; = \; 3
 
then,

T_2 + T_3 + T_5 + T_7 + ... + T_{31}
3+6+15+28+66+91+153+190+276+435+496 = 1759   is a prime number.

1759   is the smallest prime that is sum of the first consecutive triangular numbers with prime indices.

    Other such prime numbers after 1759; which meet the criterion are :
    3323, 469303, 605113, 641969, 1110587, 1426669, 11148289, 18352349,
    20473721, 21820391, 24710753, 30048589, 36690923, 40785301, 97060681,

    645803201, 665617429, 918108311, 1061260007, 1343220773, 1528035563,
    1848121591, 2201947471, 2824440713, 3561607349, 3625576729,
    3755561129, 4008129199, 4306876669, 4472398207, 5054100203,
    5403506971, 5446089137, 5553578203, 5884293949, 6633596587,
    7740387727, 8216454419, 8330595433, 8737245917, 8855687437 . . . . . .

    But, what about 3 ? I think it should be the smallest one.

    Sir,
    My heart leaps up
    when I behold
    a “Prime” related problem
    on this site….
    I don’t know why – – –

    If we consider the Index numbers 29 and 43, both prime and sum the consecutive triangular numbers with those prime indices the sum is the prime number 176809, there are many such cases with a start and end prime indices, in this case the number of primes in the range inclusive {29, 31, 37, 41, 43} is also a prime number, there are not so many of those and in the case of {3, 7, 353} where 3 and 7 are the indices and 373 is the sum then we find 373 is a palindromic prime, find the next such case.
