He's possibly referring to the sacking of Athens after the battle.

Possibly. However, few Athenians died in that sack, as they'd all fled to Salamis and elsewhere.

It just seems to be an odd statement.

There were also some horrific defeats and massacres by Carthaginians and various dictators in Magna Graecia between Thermoplyae and Philip's final destruction of Greek independence.
