Alons comes from French, Allonger which means “to get out” is a piece of paper attached to a negotiable instrument, as a memorandum of exchange, and aims to receive additional support that may not have enough space on the memorandum itself. Alons is often found in countries that use the Napoleon Act, because it requires each note to state its consideration. In addition, Alons is also usually used in civil law countries, but is now a financial instrument that is rarely given because notes of exchange are no longer common.
