FWIW, Alexandria was founded by Alexander the Great, many centuries after Odysseus' time.  There was an Egyptian village near there, called Rhakotis, but Alexandria as we know it is much later than Odysseus.

There are lots of anachronisms in this story. 

I wouldn't call that a problem; Homer is full of anachronisms, too, so in its way, this is true to its source material.
