Dear Vladimir,

Here's a seq based on your seq:

17, 97, 563, 613

Primes p,x and 1 < x < p -2  for x! + (p-1)!/x!==0 (mod p),x has only two
solutions.

and has only one solution:

7,     [1, 3, 5]
11,   [1, 5, 9]
47,   [1, 23, 45]
107, [1, 53, 105]
167, [1, 83, 165]
179, [1, 89, 177]
263, [1, 131, 261]
347, [1, 173, 345]
587, [1, 293, 585]
839, [1, 419, 837]

Yours mike,
