Only valid pascal identifiers can be used in enumerated type declaration.
FPC supports also C-style enums (assigned enumerated types, see FPC's
reference guide). But I suppose that in your case a subrange type like:

type items = 1..4;

can be used (altough I can't see no serious reason for so strict range
checking at all in the program you attached).
