In my opinion, it's an epigraph, so if you're going to have it labelled in a TOC, that's the appropriate word to use.
Uh-huh.
In fiction an epigraph is usually a fragment that sets the tone/scene for what is to follow, whereas a Prologue is a self-contained scene that precedes the narrative.
In every book I've seen Prologue and Epilogue go into the TOC but epigraphs don't.
Probably why the term isn't in common usage.
