Wire type

Ditto Marc, zip cord (stranded), split with a crimp connector. Call it out, sloppy at best. Every connection creates additional resistance, if they'd of wanted you to crimp something to each wire, they would have designed it that way. Hardly the way to feed a branch circuit.

It's bigger than romex but with no ground. Here's another shot of two runs before they're split.

What kind of fixture would this have been used for?

We can only guess as to what the amateur sparky was doing with that hookup, but it doesn't matter.

It all needs to be replaced for safety reasons, and the repair should be done by a licensed electrician. An ungrounded 240 volt circuit is questionable and also somewhat suspicious - high voltage lighting, maybe?
