As a default spectral model, we adopt a power law with slope Gamma with an intrinsic redshifted absorption NH, a fixed Galactic absorption and an unresolved Fe emission line. For 82 X-ray bright sources, we are able to perform the X-ray spectral analysis leaving both Gamma and NH free. File Summary:

Note (1): Quality flags with Q≥1 indicate optical spectral quality as: Q = 1 corresponds to spectra with a single optical line identified Q = 2 indicates secure spectra but uncertain counterpart Q = 3 indicates secure redshift Note (2): X-type as follows: C-thick = sources for which the best fit is given by a PEXRAV model (exponentially cut-off power law plus a reflection component from neutral material, Magdziarz & Zdziardski, 1995MNRAS.273..837M) C-thin = sources for which the best fit model is a power law with intrinsic absorption Soft-C = sources whose best fit model includes a soft component with the same slope of the main power law.
