Prime Number Upside down

Prime Number upside down

If you type the prime 3217001 on a calculator and hold it upside down, you can read the word “IDOLIZE”, provided you accept that ‘0’ can be both “D” and “O”. Are there any larger primes that become a meaningful word when read upside down like this?

    Well there are around 1M words in the english dictionary.
    You could loop over the words and check
    Any other ingenious method ?

    Not sure about any ingenious method. But if i ll have to do it, i would better identify the digits that look like alphabets and try to find their permutation or combination first. The to eliminate further i would not look for words without vowels and with more than 2-3 vowels/consonants together.
    Any more thoughts??
