Default Large cast iron piece. Any ideas?

Found this large cast iron piece today and looks to have the last letters of Philadelphia on it. Any ideas on what it might be? Possible cast iron pot lid?

If you don't know history you don't know anything, your like a leaf who doesn't know he's part of a tree.

Default Cast iron

Wow, a lot of cast iron was produced in Philly.
I've found parts to a sawmill, seen stoves and pots all with made in Philadelphia wording. While looking for something to match this, I even found this picture which is of a coffee grinder piece. Hopefully you will find additional parts
