Was asbestos used in ceilings?

Can anyone here ID this concrete-like slab? It was uncovered when our upstairs neighbor's radiator pipe leaked water into our ceiling. It looks like metal, but it's actually made of concrete or ceramic material. I surmise it is a fire stop. Our home dates back to 1919 and I'm concerned it *may* contain asbestos. It looks like the piece is embossed with the word “PYRO”.
