For what it's worth, Robert Frost pronounced the word the same way I do: BousTROPHedon:

From "From Plane to Plane:"

" [we] . . . at every line end

Pick up our eyes and carry them back idle

Across the page to where we started from.

The other way of reading back and forth,

Known as boustrophedon, was found too awkward.”
