After takeoff, ground personnel notified us that after our departure a large piece of an aircraft had been found on the runway. We felt no abnormal airframe vibration. Also heard nothing abnormal so the flight was continued. Short time later, ground crew notified us that piece was lower engine cowl and that numbering placed it off our aircraft. We immediately returned for an uneventful landing.
