... the second head being as large is not almost larger than the first is the oddest part to me.


There are types for which this is typical (749, 751, 753) but not with BOXX rev. (at least as far as my searching took me).


Starts to make you wonder if it's a forgery combining elements of the two types. One can find differences between the OPs coin and recently sold examples with this combination of portraits (the hairs in the long beard are more parallel; Heraclius COnstantine's moustache droops downward on both sides). But if we're comparing to the wrong reference coin ... However, the weight is right (I realize that isn't always diagnostic )

Thank you for your opinion, but I cannot admit the opinion that this is a fake, unless someone buried it on purpose. Could this be a lightweight solid with the obverse that you indicated?
I found another coin with Boxx on the reverse:

Auturxx;

Well I don't think tdziemia was saying it was fake as much as it could be a contemporary imitation of the barbarians or unlisted. From the site below I referenced earlier and again below: (Mentions Dnieper Delta and notice the "BOXX" reference as well.

-->"Bauer further reports that his colleague Zograph, while spending the summer in southern Russia in 1927, was shown seven Byzantine solidi that were ostensibly found associated with other valuable utensils in the Dnieper Delta. There were six coins of Heraclius and one piece of Constans II. All of the coins of the three-emperor type, and Bauer unfortunately does not record how many there were included in this hoard, were marked BOXX. There is hardly enough information published concerning this hoard to make possible any very significant inferences or conclusions, but it is certainly most probable that the contents of this hoard were also exported to Russia between 641 and 668 A.D. Since there is no mention of these coins being used in the manufacture of jewellery, we may presume that they were intended for commercial purposes, and perhaps the hoard was buried relatively quickly after it left the Empire."<--

@louisville, I think the article you've referenced might be the key, since it covers a large number of coins marked BOXX pertaining to regions near where this coin was found, but the recent auction archives have nearly none of these.


And I will remove my nose from an area I don;t know much about

Thank you very much, the site was not noticed for the first time. The information is useful, because the coin was found near the Irdyn River (as far as I know, there was a Dnieper arm there before).
