Abstract: Let *T* be a compact convex region in an *n*-dimensional Riemannian space, be the minimum sectional curvature in *T*, and be the minimum normal curvature of the boundary of *T*. Denote by a *v*-dimensional sphere, plane or hyperbolic plane of curvature . We assume that , *k* are such that on there exists a circumference of curvature *k*. Let be its radius. Now, let *Q* be a convex (in interior sense) *m*-dimensional surface in *T* whose normal curvatures with respect to any normal are not greater than *x* satisfying . Denote by the length of a circular arc of curvature *x* in with the distance between its ends. We prove that the volume of *Q* does not exceed the volume of a ball in of radius . These volumes are equal when *T* is a ball in and *Q* is its *m*-dimensional diameter.
