It is shown that no definite conclusions can be drawn regarding the magnitude of energy dissipation in fission during the descent from the saddle point, by a comparison of the calculated deformation and interaction energies of fission fragments near scission, with the experimental fragment excitation and kinetic energies. This is contrary to the conclusions drawn by Schultheis and Schultheis on the basis of a similar analysis. The reasons for this discrepancy are also discussed.
