> An undertaking that is sufficiently secure, and not cash or currency
Art. 2083. If the person bound to give a bond in the cases of the preceding article, should not be able to do so, a pledge or mortgage considered sufficient to cover his obligation shall be admitted in lieu thereof. (1855)
Art. 2084. A judicial bondsman cannot demand the exhaustion of the property of the principal debtor.

NOTA BENE: the only important thing in legal and judicial bonds is that it is a surety, it is not entitled to the benefit of excussion.
