In this work we present the observation of the Mkn 463 field performed with the MECS instrument on-board BeppoSAX in the 1.8-10.5 keV band. The Mkn 463 field is an example of an extragalactic field crowded with absorbed X-ray sources: apart from the Seyfert 2 galaxy Mkn 463 and the well known QSO PG 1352+183 (the only object showing no absorption), two other objects are detected with a column density in excess of the galactic value. The first 1SAX J1353.9+1820 is a red QSO from the BeppoSAX High Energy Large Area Survey (HELLAS). The second 1SAX J1355.4+1815 is optically unidentified, but its X-ray spectral characteristics indicate that it too is an AGN hidden behind a large column density.
