Giovanni Battista Moroni: 'Bust Portrait of a Young Man with an Inscription'

The sitter is probably Count Lupi of Bergamo.

The 'annob' and 'XXX' added to either side of the flourish at the bottom of the inscription, probably added soon after the painting was made, inform the viewer that the sitter died aged 30.
