Maybe this also works but I doubt it: sudo mount <your image file>

Unfortunately, Linux loop devices do not support byte swapping.
However, it should work here since he dd'ed the image with conv=swab.
But it's not as simple as just mounting a loop device, because the image
probably contains more than just a single partition. You first need to
setup the image apropriately:
losetup -P /dev/loop0 image_file
-P forces the kernel to scan the new device for partition information so
you can later on mount slices of it as separate file systems. This will
only work if your kernel has Atari partition support (which Ubuntu
kernels usually have).
If not, you'll need to extract the partition information manually (with
an Atari tool under Aranym, for example). Once you know the partition
start sector(s), you can set up loop devices with offsets into the image
(which will skip the root sector for the first partition, the first
partition for the second, and so on).
Partition type to mount should be either "fatfs" (for TOS partitions) or
"ext2" (for MiNT ext2 filesystems).
