        I'd say cow- going by a very useful book 'Atlas of Animal Bones' by Elisabeth Schmid. Page 83 shows horse and cow teeth. They do vary in appearance depending on how worn down they are, but this one looks typically cow. There may have been a slaughterhouse or butcher nearby, and let's not forget that the Thames was used as a waste disposal.
