They are listed as Greek when they aren't really Greek

Alexandria was a Hellenic city in Egypt. For hundreds of years, the occupants there were primarily Greek. They spoke Greek and followed Greek customs and worshiped Greek gods.
They were still Egyptians even if they spoke Greek, followed Greek culture etc. Perhaps, you could elaborate on your points. I believe there were persons of different faiths in Egypt at that time - some were more like Greeks in terms of culture, language, etc, and others were more like non-Greeks. They all were still residing in Egypt. A Jew who did some great work in Germany is a German Jew, or just German, not an Israeli.
