Default Building T for Foundation

I found this in my back building. The length is 11 1/4". The plate is 5"x2 1/2"x3/16". The screw is 10 3/4" in length. I think the screw part is broken and probably was longer when ok. I think it might be a building T for a foundation. Thank you for your assistance in identifying this.
Regards,
Rob

It's part of an adjustable beam support.

There would have been a large thing shaped similar to a big wing nut that threaded onto your item. A piece of pipe, with a flange on it would have slipped over the threaded section, resting on the 'wing nut'. Placed under a beam, you would turn the 'wing nut' until you leveled out the sagging beam.
