Puzzle 1029. p that divides the number of partitions of p

On Dec. 21, 2020, G.L. Honaker, Jr. made me notice this interesting prime curio from Matin Sariyar:

The largest known prime p that divides P(p), the number of partitions of p. Note that P(5273) = 21324454654025779150078250115620526414565357199214419652174475578296382696055 = 5 7 17 37  5273  305971 182248 634924 894453 283809 003678 349559 11607 287812 587037 273754 619257. [Sariyar]

Q. Can you find another example?

 


During the week Jan 30 to Feb 5, contributions came from Oscar Volpatti, Simon Cavegn.

I identified the first 17 numbers n that divide their partition number P(n):
1, 23, 124, 158, 342, 693, 1896, 3853, 4434, 5273, 8640, 14850, 17928, 110516, 178984, 274534.
Primes are marked in red. I checked all integers up to 2*10^7 and all primes up to 1.4*10^8, finding no more solutions.

Found no larger such prime p. Searched up to p=32001516 where P(p) has 6294 digits, where I had to stop because the caching of subresults used more memory than the available 64GB.
