Puzzle 51.- Pi such that Pi is Palprime & i = palindrome

Apart from the first 4 trivial ones:

P2 = 3
P
3 = 5
P
4 = 7
P
5 = 11

I have found the first non trivial:

P8114118 = 143787341

(See the Sloane’s sequence A046942)

a) Can you find the following non-trivial of such Pi’s?
b) Can you find the first Pi (non-trivial) such that both Pi and i are palprimes, (if they exist)?

Giovanni Resta got (May 2003) the next solution to question a):

Here it is the next number which is a palindromic prime with a palindromic index: 11853735811 is the 535,252,535-th prime. (a nice number by itself)
