The heading I use for the TOC is "Contents." It's not a table in the
sense people use the word these days.

Lists of figures and tables are obsolete, a holdover from the days
when the limitations of typesetting, printing, and bookbinding meant
you couldn't put them anywhere you wanted or automatically insert the
correct page number in a cross-reference. That said, if I had to
create such lists, I'd head them "Figures" and "Tables."
