Introduction

Palindromic numbers are numbers which read the same from
left to right (forwards) as from the right to left (backwards)
Here are a few random examples : 7, 3113, 44611644

Octagonal numbers are defined and calculated by this extraordinary intricate and excruciatingly complex formula.
So, this line is for experts only

base x ( 3 x base - 2 )
The best way to get a 'structural' insight as how to imagine octagonals is to visit for instance this site :

Normal and Palindromic Octagonals

So far I compiled 32 Palindromic Octagonals.
The largest one was found by Feng Yuan from Washington State, USA,
on [ January 3, 2008 ].

 This basenumber 790.350.914.396.051.463.771 has 21 digits yielding the following palindromic octagonal number 1.873.963.703.660.024.006.763.676.004.200.663.073.693.781 with a length of 43 digits.

A palindromic octagonal numbers can only end with digit 1, 3, 5, 6 and 8.

There exist no palindromic octagonals of length
2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, 18, 20, 22, 23, 26, 31, 34.
