```Michel and I found some terms for A175252 by listing divisors of "small"
positive integers. Like listing the divisors of 693 and sticking them
together from left to right gives the term 13791121336377.
So maybe by checking the divisors of 7-rough numbers might give a term
starting with 17.

Best,
David
