Illustrations of Erysichthon

Uta Kron, "Erysichthon I," in Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae IV.I (Zürich: Artemis Verlag, 1988), pp. 14-18 (at 16), lists three probable representations of "Erysichthons Baumfrevel" on ancient Greek vases:Carl Werner Müller, "Kallimachos und die Bildtradition des Erysichthonmythos," Rheinisches Museum 131 (1988) 136-142, has photographs of two of the three vases.

Bonn 2661 (Müller at p. 137):

Matera 9975 (Müller at p. 141):

Mary Lefkowitz, Greek Gods, Human Lives: What We Can Learn from Myths (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2005) p. 187, has a somewhat clearer photograph of the Bonn vase by Wolfgang Klein:

I can't find a photograph of the vase in Stockholm.
