|Spanish term or phrase: lomeo|
|It is on a receipt from a security transportation company in Paraguay. One section of the form says 'Usar exclusivamente en los casos de servicios con a)Recuento b)Lomeo.'|
That section of the form then has columns 'denominación del billetaje', 'cantidad de billetes', 'cant. de lomos'. The copy is poor quality, but I reasonably sure that is what it says.
When bills are counted out, they are put into stacks, or packets, containing a determined numbered of bills. Ex: 100-$1, 25-$5, 20-$10, etc.
This operation is "stacking". Lomos are the stacks.

wad [of banknotes/bills] (stack, pile)
Wouldn't this 'lomeo, lomos' refer to a stack, wad or pile of bills/notes, typically seen in a US film involving crime? A wad of notes in denominations of $100, $50, etc. Some 50 notes of $50 and that's $2500 US.
I suggest this from the context and also the term 'lomo' being the part of the animal (pig, beef (in Spanish)) that is expensive, of quality and fairly thick: 'the loin'.
It sounds like a wad to me, though I know this is fairly informal.
Best of luck,
