Two statues found near Beit Shean

CHANCE FIND: TWO UNIQUE ROMAN STATUES DISCOVERED NEAR BURIAL SITE IN ANCIENT BEIT SHEAN. The statues' discovery is important for understanding late Roman period style, as no two statues from this time period resemble each other (Rachel Bernstein, Jerusalem Post).

I wonder how big they are. There is no scale in the photo and the article doesn't say.
