We selected EROs using a multi-band photometric catalog down to a Ks-band magnitude of ∼19.3 (Vega system); 14 EROs were detected in X-rays, corresponding to ∼9% of the overall X-ray source population (149 X-ray sources) and to ∼5% of the ERO population (288). The X-ray emission of all X-ray detected EROs is consistent with that of an active galactic nucleus (AGN) (≳3.5x1042erg/s at photometric redshifts z>1), in agreement with previous X-ray observations, with an indication of increasing absorption between the three X-ray brightest EROs and the 11 X-ray faintest EROs. Description: The "Daddi field", centered on 14:49:29+09:00:00 (J2000), was observed in the Ks band with the ESO NTT 3.5m telescope at La Silla in 1999, using the SOFI camera. File Summary:

Note (1): Fluxes obtained from the count-rate conversion, assuming a power-law model with Gamma=1.8/2.0/1.4/1.4. Note (2): The upper limits (at the 95% confidence level) to the counts, hence the reported fluxes, were computed according to Kraft et al. (1991ApJ...374..344K). Only five sources are detected in the full band without being detected in the two sub-bands considered in this work (because of the adopted detection threshold).
