I find complete phonetic correspondence between Shakespeare and Plutarch like the following.
William Shakespeare (baptized 26 April 1564; died 23 April 1616)[
born Plutarchos (Greek: Πλούταρχος) then, on his becoming a Roman citizen, Lucius Mestrius Plutarchus (Μέστριος Πλούταρχος), c. 46 – 120 AD,

** The below shows that even (not Greek but) English translation/version of "Theseus" phonetically corresponds to "All's Well That Ends Well", perfectly in all texts.
E.G.: Rousillon (Sosius)
Rousillon (S/P + osius/C2)/abT Sosius
That is, when speaking "Sosius", (while making articulation ball of /abT) if articulating "S" from English /P/Ch posture and "osius" from English /C2/Ch posture, then, "Rousillon" is metaphthong/MPh pronounced.
And, when speaking "As geographers", (while making articulation ball of /abT) if articulating [ŋ= y=] from English /P/Ch posture and "As geographers" from English /C2/Ch posture, then, "SCENE I/ONE " is metaphthong/MPh pronounced.
As geographers, Sosius, crowd into the edges of their maps parts of the world which they do not know about, adding notes in the margin to the effect, that beyond this lies nothing but sandy deserts full of wild beasts, unapproachable bogs, Scythian ice, or a frozen sea, so, in this work of mine, in which I have compared the lives of the greatest men with one another, after passing through those periods which probable reasoning can reach to and real history find a footing in, I might very well say of those that are farther off, Beyond this there is nothing but prodigies and fictions, the only inhabitants are the poets and inventors of fables; there is no credit, or certainty any farther. Yet, after publishing an account of Lycurgus the lawgiver and Numa the king, I thought I might, not without reason, ascend as high as to Romulus, being brought by my history so near to his time.
Whom shall I set so great a man to face?
Or whom oppose? who’s equal to the place?
(as Aeschylus expresses it), I found none so fit as him that peopled the beautiful and far-famed city of Athens, ~
All's Well That Ends Well
SCENE I (As geographers). Rousillon (Sosius). The COUNT's palace (crowd into the edges).
Enter BERTRAM (of their maps), the COUNTESS of Rousillon (parts of the world), HELENA (which), and LAFEU (they), all in black (do not know about)
COUNTESS (adding notes in the margin)
In delivering my son (to the effect) from me (that beyond this lies), I bury (nothing but sandy deserts) a second husband (full of wild beasts).
BERTRAM (unapproachable bogs)
And I (Scythian ice) in going (or a frozen sea), madam (so, in this work), weep o'er my father's death (of mine, in which)
anew (I have compared): but I must attend (the lives of the greatest men) his majesty's command (with one another), to (after passing through those periods)
whom (which probable reasoning) I am now (can reach to) in ward (and real history), evermore (find a footing in) in subjection (I might very well say).
LAFEU (of those that are farther off)
You shall find (Beyond this there is nothing) of the king (but prodigies) a husband (but prodigies and fictions), madam; you (the only inhabitants),
sir (are the poets), a father (and inventors of fables): he that so generally (there is no credit) is at all times (or certainty any farther)
good must of necessity (Yet, after publishing an account) hold his virtue (of Lycurgus the lawgiver) to you (and Numa the king); whose (I thought I might)
worthiness would stir (not without reason) it up where (ascend as high as) it wanted (to Romulus) rather (being brought by my history)
than (so near to his time) lack it where there is (Whom shall I set so great a man to face?) such abundance (Or whom oppose?).
COUNTESS (who’s equal to the place?)
What hope is there (as Aeschylus expresses it) of his majesty's amendment? (I found none so fit)
He (as him) hath (that peopled) abandoned (the beautiful and far-famed city of Athens) ~
