Big Sarcophagii?

Even just browsing a few archaeological websites can bring-up some fascinating anomilies. Like the huge ‘Bull sarcophagii’ at the Serapeium. Strangely, as with the pyramids, no bodies (bull or otherwise) have been found in these stone boxes.
The huge granite coffins (?) weigh over 50 tons – possibly as much as 80 tons and are made perfectly from granite.
That there are no bulls inside the big sarcophagii is one thing, but another surely must be how the Egyptians and/or Romans, got the things down into the tunneled Serapeium vaults in the first place. There’s hardly room for a few folk to walk let alone drag a fifty-ton box plus its massive lid about.
Could, perhaps, the bulls have done the dragging?
