Title?

Can anyone tell me what precedes the name of the deceased, Josephi Costa? It looks like Mag~ and I'm wondering if this is a title indicating he was someone of importance. I appreciate any help, thanks!

Thank you, Sabino.

What would that indicate? Does this mean he was someone important?

Yes.

Significa che questa persona era un maestro nel suo mestiere.
