Maybe German culture just doesn't reference Greek myth as easily as British/American/Canadian culture does, I don't really know.
I don't know but "Abstieg vom Olymp" is being used quite often in German. Though it might have a slightly different connotation because it typically refers to a single person coming down from a high position. "Olympus descending" sounds to me more like the whole olymp is falling apart, which might be what was supposed to be alluded to in the novel.
