Among the 266 radio sources detected, we find 89 sources (1/3 of the total) with X-ray counterparts in the catalog of the 1Ms exposure of the central 0.08deg2 or in the catalog of the 250ks exposure of the 0.3deg2 E-CDFS field. For 76 (85%) of these sources, we have spectroscopic or photometric redshifts, and therefore we are able to derive their intrinsic properties from X-ray spectral analysis, namely intrinsic absorption and total X-ray luminosities. We find that the population of submillijansky radio sources with X-ray counterparts is composed of a mix of roughly 1/3 star-forming galaxies and 2/3 active galactic nuclei (AGNs). Description: We observed the whole area of the E-CDFS (∼0.3deg2) with the NRAO VLA for 50hr at 1.4GHz mostly in the BnA configuration in 1999 and 2001 February, and for 32hr at 5GHz mostly in the C and CnB configurations in 2001. The effective angular resolution is 3.5". Here we use the radio catalog presented in Paper I (Kellermann et al., 2008, Cat. J/ApJS/179/71). In the E-CDFS area, we have two sets of X-ray data. The first is the 1Ms exposure in the central ∼0.1deg2 (Rosati et al. 2002ApJ...566..667R; Giacconi et al. 2002, Cat. J/ApJS/139/369; Alexander et al. 2003, Cat. J/AJ/126/539), the second one is the shallower ∼250ks coverage of a square region of 0.28deg2 centered on the above field (Lehmer et al. 2005, Cat. J/ApJS/161/21). For the sources identified in the 1Ms exposure of the CDFS, the spectroscopic identification program carried out with the ESO-VLT is presented in Szokoly et al. (2004, Cat. J/ApJS/155/271).

J/ApJS/161/21; <[LBA2005] NNN> in Simbad Note (2): Flag (only for table 1) as follows: s = source fitted with a soft component m = source fitted with a reflection model (pexrav) as in Tozzi et al. (2006, Cat. J/A+A/451/457) Note (3): Same conventions as Zheng et al. 2004, Cat. J/ApJS/155/73 (<1 is photometric, ≥1 is spectroscopic, 2 is secure spectroscopic; however many more intermediate values exist here than in Zheng et al.) Note (4): Optical type as follows: 1 = broad line AGN (BLAGN); 2 = high excitation line (HEX); 3 = low excitation lines (LEX); 4 = absorption spectrum galaxy (ABS). 0 = only photometric redshifts are available or no optical classification is possible.
