It looks like part of the word is cut off. Possibly it is the word commesso, which is a salesman, but I can't say for sure.

Yes it is Commesso = Salesman in a shop

Erudita, in Chrome if you right-click on the image and open it on a different tab you see the entire image with no cuts.

I have no idea what Chrome is, but I forgot to right click with my mouse to view the entire image earlier, as I was on my way out this morning to walk my four miles when I replied to the post. I appreciate your input though and am glad I got the occupation correct.
