Both 288 and 289 are powerful numbers.
288 is the number of labelled pointed rooted trees (vertebrates) with up to 4 nodes, the number of maximal directed Pseudoforests on up to 4 vertices, the number of Endofunctions for all sets with ≤ 4 points, and is two dozen sets of a dozen, thus being two gross and being 200 in base 12, often told as a pun in maths classes.
