This is probably telling you what you have worked out for yourself...Looks to me like an acetabulum (the socket in which the proximal part of the femur locates).  It doesn't appear to be extremely ancient - anywhere from ice-age to recent.  But the discolouration implies a decent age and it looks as if it has been abraded, presumably by sea action?  I doubt that there is enough left to be able to ascertain from which creature it came, except to an expert.  Do any of the ends (not shown in the photo) seem flat and possibly cut by a saw?  Could be butchering evidence.
