Let's say for sake of argument that they show up in Mexico (having avoided Cuba and every other place) -- a crew of 20 people and cargo.

So 20 people in strange clothes with no ability to talk your language end up in a city state that's at war with other city states. And two of the travelers just happen to be a brick maker (who is on a ship as a passenger obviously and not useful crew) and an architect (ditto)

How do two prisoners with no way to communicate manage to live several hundred years (until 500 AD) so that they can convince the ruler of a city state to use a rare construction technique to build structures that are NOT like Roman structures -- and to make bricks by cutting slabs of clay (which was not like the technique used for Roman/Mediterranean bricks)?

Also, the "Roman amphorae" are few in number (originally only 16) and are not Roman... they're modern (and the manufacturer has said they're his and they're modern) [www.grunge.com]
