Yes, and boustrophedon on a three-dimensional object is not the same
as boustrophedon text directionality, I am sure.
Boustrophedon in Greek means a flat field for text where the first
line goes one direction, the second goes the other, and so on repeating.
The same cannot be said about a three-dimensional stick. It is not a
field of text. It's got two (or more) sides and it's meant to be
turned over in the hand. That is not ox-plowing.
