Rowboater

Found a bone piece, maybe 2 1/2" at its longest, solid and heavy for its size.  The 'bottom' is partly "stippled" (not part of the atlas vertebra, as I learned here recently). Different textures on different sides, the small protuberance is remarkable for the number of holes and channels (for blood vessels? nerve bundles?), at least one passing straight through.  @Boesse you seem to be the acknowledged expert here.  Do I have enough and are the photos (sorry!) clear enough to guess at an ID?

It’s part of a cetacean periotic.
