• Probably 259 is the largest number that can be
written in two ways as 2^{x} + 3^{y}.
Here 259 = 2^{8} + 3^{1} = 2^{4} + 3^{5}.

• 259 can be written using four 4's:

259 has 4 divisors (see below), whose sum is σ = 304. Its totient is φ = 216.

The previous prime is 257. The next prime is 263. The reversal of 259 is 952.

259 is nontrivially palindromic in base 6.

It is a semiprime because it is the product of two primes.

It is a 3-Lehmer number, since φ(259) divides (259-1)^{3}.

It is a cyclic number.

It is not a de Polignac number, because 259 - 2^{1} = 257 is a prime.

It is a deceptive number, since it divides R_{258}.

It is a Duffinian number.

259 is a lucky number.

259 is a nontrivial repdigit in base 6.

It is a nialpdrome in base 6 and base 7.

It is a zygodrome in base 6.

It is not an unprimeable number, because it can be changed into a prime (251) by changing a digit.

It is a nontrivial repunit in base 6.

It is a pernicious number, because its binary representation contains a prime number (3) of ones.

It is a polite number, since it can be written in 3 ways as a sum of consecutive naturals, for example, 12 + ... + 25.

It is an arithmetic number, because the mean of its divisors is an integer number (76).

259 is a deficient number, since it is larger than the sum of its proper divisors (45).

259 is an equidigital number, since it uses as much as digits as its factorization.
