I'm actually not sure what your problem is with this, especially since
"prologue" and "epilogue" are both of greek origin.

{taymey} is part of a book that is not part of the main contents. You
could probable even read and understand the story without looking at the
{taymey}. You might see it as a "frame", or as "additional information".
In most cases, the taymey are shorter than the book itself.

Look at this page of contents:

bI'reS taymey  <-- introduction telling you to read the book
   chapter 1 <-- story begins here
   chapter 2
   chapter 3
   chapter 4 <-- story ends here
bertlham taymey <-- final word outside the story
HommaH <-- appendix with additional information, like a glossary

Does that help?
