Numero

Homme de numero—that is “un homme fin en affaires.” M. Walckenaer says it is a shop phrase, meaning that he knows all the numbers of the different goods, or all the private marks indicative of price and quality.

Il n'etoit lors, de Paris jusqu a Rome,
Galant qui sut si bien le namero.

La Fontaine: Richard Minutoto.
