The existence of longitudinal solitary waves is shown for the Hamiltonian dynamics of a 2D elastic lattice of particles interacting via harmonic springs between nearest and next nearest neighbours. A contrasting nonexistence result for transversal solitary waves is given. The presence of the longitudinal waves is related to the two-dimensional geometry of the lattice which creates a universal overall anharmonicity.
