Δεν έμεινε λίθος επί λίθου
(The phrase is taken from Matt. 24:2, There shall not be left here one stone upon another)
Said for major disasters

Δεν έμεινε ρουθούνι
(roughly, "not even a nostril has been left")
Said in major natural disasters or wars, when a large number of people or other living creatures have perished. In the major Byzantine-Arab conflict of 11th c, Byzantine historian George Cedrenus describes how after a victorious battle for the Byzantines, general Georgios Maniaces ordered his troops to cut off the ears and noses from the Arab dead and send them to Constantinople as a gift for the Emperor. In Byzantine Greek: "τὰς ῥῖνας καὶ τὰ ὦτα τῶν πεσόντων ἀποτεμὼν" ("he cut off the noses and ears of the fallen")

Η γλώσσα του/της στάζει μέλι
(roughly "from his/her tongue flows honey")
Said for someone who speaks well for other people; taken from Homers Iliad 1:249 ("Then Nestor stood up, clear, sweet orator from Pylos. Sweeter than honey the words flowed from his tongue")
